Next Tuesday is Christmas Day. Over the course of our lives, we get accustomed to celebrating this blessed holiday in certain ways, and with certain people. But the circumstances of life can alter who we are with. A spouse, parent or loved one may be deployed and away from home at Christmas. Perhaps you’ve recently lost someone dear to you, and this will be your first Christmas without them. Maybe you recently moved to a different part of the country, and won’t be able to make it home to be with family and good friends. If you will be missing the company of important people this year at Christmas, take this opportunity to share how much they mean to you, and how much you wish they were with you to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
